Nationals' Ian Desmond not starting Thursday

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/2/15) With the Nationals giving shortstop Ian Desmond the day off Thursday, the team turned to infielder Danny Espinosa to start at shortstop and bat second at Atlanta, reports MASNsports.com.

Desmond is hitting .158 with two home runs and five RBI in his last 10 games. He was given the day off Thursday to correct a mechanical flaw in his swing. 

"We're trying to create a little bit of different muscle memory," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "I think he's back to where he wants to be with regard to where his hands are when he starts [his swing], which will allow him to have a better path to the baseball.

"So today we're giving him a day because he's working extra. Today is a day for him to get that work done."

The Nationals are favored (-180) at Atlanta on Thursday.

The home run, which came in the fourth inning off Phillies starter Severini Gonzalez, was Desmond's seventh of the season. He finished the game 1 for 3 with two RBI.

Over his last five games, Desmond is hitting .278 with two home runs and five RBI.

Jose Lobaton replaces Wilson Ramos in Nationals' skeleton lineup

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/15) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos gets a rest on Saturday as Jose Lobaton gets the start behind the plate. 

Lobaton starts for the 18th time and second time in the last nine games. 

With the lineup shuffling resulting from three other Nationals players sitting out due to injury, Saturday's lineup features just one regular --shortstop Ian Desmond

Nationals SS Ian Desmond pops two-run home run on Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond broke out of his prolonged slump in a big way on Thursday. Desmond went 2 for 4, including a two-run home run, his sixth of the year, in the second inning of the 6-0 victory over the Braves. It was his first home run since June 7.

Desmond, who also scored twice, had been hitting a lowly .108 (4 for 37) with 16 strikeouts over his previous 10 games entering play on Thursday. 

"He stayed on a fastball away and hit it over the fence," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "I'm happy for him that he was able to hit that homer. The ball back through the middle are really good signs. It means he's staying on it and seeing it good. I hope that'll get him hot and get him rolling."

Nationals bench Ian Desmond again Tuesday night

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/15) Scuffling Nationals third baseman Ian Desmond has been given Tuesday night off against Atlanta. It marks his second benching in the last four games and third in the last 11 after he had started every previous game this season.

Matt Williams has stated that Desmond was benched Tuesday because he didn't get as much of a chance to sit over the weekend.

Desmond has shown signs of emerging from his slump with four hits in his last five games. But he is batting .118 (6-for-51) since June 6.
